Are you done with your holiday shopping?

Written by PTA. Posted in Articles, PTA

Are you done with your holiday shopping yet?  No? Well, the PTA has the PERFECT solution for you!

This Thursday, December 15th, is the BFIS Elementary Winter Concert–and this year, the doors open at 5:30 for our Holiday Bazaar.  We’ll be featuring some amazing vendors before and after the concert.

One of our own BFIS moms will be selling her adorable handmade soaps–perfect for stocking stuffers or a Secret Santa gift.

Do you love jewelry?  One of our friends is offering her funky jewelry, made from Nespresso caps–can you believe it?  We’re featuring some more traditional pieces in gold and silver, with precious stones as well.

Another vendor specializes in gorgeous handmade stockings–and still another has a line of kitchen apparel that is sure to be perfect for someone on your list.

Haven’t sent out your greeting cards yet?  Me neither–but luckily, one of our vendors will be selling amazing cards, inspired by the artwork and streetscapes of Barcelona.

Want to own a unique piece of Barcelona’s history?  One of our friends salvages antique Modernist tiles, then gives them new life as trivets, coasters, tables and consoles.

So, don’t forget to mark your calendar and grab your purse.  Come for the songs–but stay for the shopping.  See you at Clinica Planas!

Winter Concert and Craft Bazaar

Written by PTA. Posted in PTA

Come and join us for the annual BFIS Elementary Winter Concert, Thursday, December 15th, in the auditorium of Clinica Planas.

The beautiful, multicultural songs of our children, directed by the talented Miss Rachel, are always a huge community draw.

This year, we’ve added something new–making the evening even more of a treat.  Student service groups, like Habitat for Humanity, will be raising funds and awareness of their mission through a giant bake sale.  The PTA will offer cava, water and juice for those thirsty parents and performers.

Finally, we have a wonderful small selection of vendors from the BFIS community and beyond, who will be selling some delightful handmade crafts.  It’s a great opportunity to pick up a last-minute treat for a friend, relative, or even for yourself.

Doors to the Bazaar open at 5:30 PM, and the concert will begin at 6:30.

And, on another topic–please don’t forget that the first rows are reserved for our students and their teachers.  They love to watch their friends perform–and they need quick access to the stage.  This also means that we have to keep the center and side aisles completely clear.  Thanks in advance for your cooperation, and we look forward to seeing you!
